I met Dr Tom today for the first time. He was very professional, very caring and despite the fact that my visit was something minor (wax removing), he spent a considerable amount of time with me, he checked my head,neck,mouth, and asked me many questions about my health in order to be sure I had not forgot to mention other problems. I will definitely go back to see him again. Also the office staff is very kind and efficient.

Dr. Tom and the group at ENT and Allergy associates are quite good. They use modern technology to speed up the appointment process, they tend to run not terribly far behind the appointment times. He is very thorough, very good at his specialty, and I feel that I am very well taken care of. Along with Dr. Nowak, the allergist, they have been great.

My 2 year old son was suffering from frequent ear infections which led me to take him to see an ENT. I saw Dr Nowak (allergist) at this office, whom i think is wonderful, which led me to seek an ENT at the same location thinking the experience would be just as positive. My first consultation with an ENT at this office was not a positive one, the doctor rushed and didn't really listen to my concerns, said in order to treat he needed to see an active infection. I left disappointed but still determined to get help for my son. I read some reviews and found Dr Tom. At first reluctant to go back to the practice I decided to give it another try and am SOOO HAPPY that i did! Dr Tom is so compassionate and professional. He let us ask all the questions we needed and listened. He did not rush our appointment, we felt like our son was his priority as if we were the only ones scheduled. We mutually decided to have ear tubes placed in his ear, Dr Tom being the surgeon. I was nervous leading up to the appointment so i'd call the office and he would always take my calls and answered all my questions. The surgery went great he greeted us with a smile and after surgery was done came an explained everything to us. Also answered all my calls the days following my sons surgery. Dr Tom is truly a gem at this practice, I would recommend a million times over. I am looking forward to my sons follow up visits with Dr Tom!

Had my first appointment with Dr. Tom today to treat a chronic ear infection that refused to go away. My only regret is not seeing him sooner. The office is friendly and seems well-equipped for procedures and quick tests. Doc listened carefully to my symptoms and history, conducted his exam, and then clearly explained what was happening and how we were going to treat it. I don't hesitate to recommend him.
